Satellogic Chooses the Netherlands for its Largest Production Facility to Date
The satellite company will construct a 4,700 square meter facility to expand and accelerate its global operations
Satellogic, a global satellite manufacturing and data company with operations in the U.S., Argentina and more, is expanding its presence in Europe through a state-of-the-art facility in Berkel en Rodenrijs, the Netherlands. The expansion positions Satellogic in the heart of the Netherlands, a global frontrunner for aerospace technology and innovation. The international company’s new Dutch facility will accommodate its high-tech manufacturing, integration and testing equipment. When completed, the 4,700 square meter plant will deliver 25 satellites per quarter.
Joining a collaborative aerospace ecosystem in the Netherlands
Satellogic joins a fleet of global aerospace companies operating in the Netherlands, and will benefit from the country’s network of collaborative institutions including the European Space Agency. The Netherlands’ extensive expertise in aerospace technology and advanced manufacturing will prove to be highly beneficial for Satellogic’s continued growth.
“Satellogic’s new production facility in Berkel en Rodenrijs further solidifies the Netherlands as a European hub in the aerospace industry,” said Henny Jacobs, Executive Director for the Americas at the Netherlands Foreign Investment Agency (NFIA). “The company will have access to the Netherlands’ state-of-the-art research facilities, as well as the skilled talent that our country attracts from across the EU. Another major advantage will be the opportunities for Satellogic to collaborate with over 100 businesses and research institutions dedicated to improving aerospace logistics, parts and materials.”
World-class Dutch logistics support and talent
A major deciding factor in Satellogic’s decision to locate in Berkel en Rodenrijs was the city’s proximity to The Hague, Delft and Rotterdam. These areas can provide Satellogic with the Netherlands’ world-class logistics support and aerospace talent.
“Delft’s reputation for space expertise and talent is world-renowned, as is Rotterdam’s status as a global logistics hub and gateway to Europe,” said Gustav Wenhold, VP Manufacturing Operations at Satellogic. “Both cities are just ten minutes away, allowing us to get the best of both worlds.”
Founded in 2010, Satellogic is the first vertically integrated geospatial company in the world.
